The McMORRINEs of AUSTRALIA
& NEW ZEALAND
Last updated 2 April 2007

One McMorrine family from Dumfrieshire in Scotland emigrated to Australia during the 19th century. Several McMorrins from Dumfries, Scotland and Ireland emigrated to Australia although that surname nowadays belongs to just one family in Brisbane and at least one family of that surname emigrated to NZ from Dumfries (see the McMORRINs of Australia and New Zealand). There are no McMorrines or McMorrins amongst the many convicts who were transported to Australia. The McMorrine surname is not uncommon in New South Wales but reflects the single emigrant family mentioned earlier and the McMorrons of Victoria and South Australia who originally spelt their name McMorrine are another branch of that same family. A branch of the McMorrines of NSW established itself in New Zealand around the turn of the 19th century.Several McMorrins from Dumfries, Scotland and Ireland emigrated to Australia although that surname nowadays belongs to just one family in Brisbane and at least one family of that surname emigrated to NZ.from Dumfries. There are no McMorrins amongst the many convicts who were transported to Australia.

Victoria

Jane Louisa Maynord McMorrin, aged 19, a native of Monaghan in Ireland emigrated to Port Phillip aboard the Duke of Newcastle arriving in October 1865 as an assisted immigrant. Two years later she married William Field May.  Their children were: Charles William (b. 1868), William Field (b. 1869, d. 1873, Collingwood), Eva May (b. 1871, Collingwood), Olive Ethel (d. 1876, Collingwood) and William Field (b. 1876, Fitzroy).

William McMorrin of Dumfries married Euphemia Little in Victoria in 1868 and was probably the son of William McMorrin and Sarah Currie.  He died at St Kilda in 1885 aged 46.

James McMorrin of Ireland (b.c. 1822) the son of Felix McMorrin and Bridget Fletcher died in Victoria in 1875.

Thomas McMorin (or possibly McMorrow*) of Sligo in Ireland married Mary Anne (a.k.a. Minnie) O'Shea in Victoria in 1876 and they had children Ruby Alba (b.1886, St. Kilda) and Mabel Una (b.1888)

Although his family were from Closeburn in Dumfrieshire where the surname was previously spelt McMorrine, Alexander McMorron was in fact born in Kendall, Westmoreland in the north of England in 1820 (see The McMORRINES of Dumfrieshire/Kirkcudbrightshire). He had been previously married to Margaret Hunter by whom his he had three children: James, Jane and Sarah (who died while young). After remarrying to Jean Clark (Margaret presumably having died) they had a child named Alice. The family then emigrated to Australia aboard the Australis arriving at Port Phillip on the 24th of August 1852. The shipping list contains several innaccuracies: the surname was spelt McMorrend, Jean was called Agnes and child Jane was called Rhoda unless the latter names were what were known by.

Alexander took his family to Ballarat where he ran a hotel and he had another three girls: Sarah (named after the one from the first marriage who died) in 1852, Elizabeth in 1856 and Mary in 1858. The second Sarah succumbed to dysentry at the age of 7 and was buried in Ballarat in 1859. Some time after this the family moved to Mount Gambier in South Australia another three boys were born: Alexander, John and Thomas.  Their father Alexander died on the 29th of June 1867 just three months after Thomas' birth. Alexander's eldest child James had just married Charlotte Cook earlier that month at Limestone Ridge in Victoria but they had all their children in Mount Gambier.

James was a fine horseman. He obtained employment on the Moorak estate and after some years became a farmer at Glenburnie. In 1881 he became a Councillor for the Glenburnie Ward of Mount Gambier. He was Chairman of the Council in 1886 and 1887. In 1890 he went to Millicent and both farmed and dealt in stock, until the turn of the century when he returned to Mount Gambier where he died in 23 September 1915. James and Charlotte had 11 children, who have many descendants in Victoria and South Australia. There were 27 grandchildren at the time of James' death.

Thomas McMorrine
(aged 31), his wife Mary (nee Anderson - a native of Glasgow aged 26) and his siblings Robert (18) and Catherine (18) emigrated to Sydney from Dumfrieshire around 1875 (for earlier generations of this family see The McMORRINES of Dumfrieshire/Kirkcudbrightshire).  Thomas began contracting around the Macleay River region in New South Wales and also Gympie, north of Brisbane with his brother and he then settled in Lismore around 1885.  His brother James had emigrated a few years earlier and had settled at Lower Elsinore.  The pair built the Australian Bank of Commerce in Lismore as well as the Port Macqaurie Court House, Central Kempsey Post Office, West Kempsey Post Office, Gladstone Courthouse, Gympie Hospital and the Gympie Wesleyan Church amongst other prominent buildings. Thomas died in 1915 but left six children who have many descendents. James married to Anna Davey and emigrated to New Zealand where a number of relatives live until this day (see below).  Catherine was married twice and also has a number of descendants (see below).  It is not known what became of Robert although he did have two children (see below).
